Meet Australia’s iconic devils at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an innovative wildlife park set up to protect this endangered creature and educate the public about the importance of environmental conservation. The park’s main attraction is the devil, but you can also see other native animals, such as quolls and pademelons. Special presentations about the efforts to save Australia’s endangered animals are held in conjunction with daily feedings, during which visitors can approach the park’s friendly kangaroos and birds. You can also go on leisurely nature walks through the park’s botanic garden, which abounds with diverse plant and animal life. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, where every ticket and souvenir sold makes a little difference in the vital efforts to save the devils.

  • We really enjoyed the up close encounters you could get with the Tassie Devils. The bird show and feeding times were also interesting. 
  • If you are in the area this attraction worth a visit, especially to observe the famous Tasmanian Devils, which in this region do not have the tumor that has exterminated a few years ago almost 90% of the population of this carnivorous Tasmanian marsupiade. Besides that you can observe and feed the kangaroos of forests, species that is found only in Tasmania (also seen in the North East of the island), to certain wallabies that are found only in Tasmania and attend a show with birds. The ticket price may seem a bit pricey but serves as well to safeguard Tasmanian Devil project which was in danger of disappearing due to this tumour transmissible that decimated, out of this peninsula of Tasmania, this cute, but also aggressive, marsupiade typical of this region.

  • Excellent place to call in to on the way to or from Port Arthur. Animals will eat from your hands, bird show was a lark. Guides very knowledgeable and passionate. Also helps the Devil's conservation efforts.
  • I hate zoos, this is not your average zoo. The guide Connor was unreal. The animals appear to have a relationship with him and he was extremely informative and personable. The animals have large enclosures and seem very relaxed and well fed.
  • We were driving to Port Arthur when we saw the sign for this place. Intrigued, we decided to stop, and I'm so glad we did as it turned out to be a trip highlight. We were just in time for the Tasmanian Devil feeding session - the first time I'd ever seen one of these amazing creatures in the flesh. I was pleased by how close we were to all the animals - not like the majority of other zoos where you need binoculars to even see a sign of wildlife! On the way back from Port Arthur we stopped again (for no further cost) to pat the kangaroos, who were incredibly calm and tame, and we saw some more Devils up close. The staff were exuberant and friendly and very knowledgable. Thank you!
  • To me traditional zoos are always slightly disheartening to visit, so it was an uplifting experience to experience something different. Though, the zoo is small and doesn't have large numbers of exotic animals, it encourages you to quite involved with the animals it does have and together with the passionate staff, this makes for a wonderful afternoon. Oh, and feeding kangaroos is awesome!
  • This was a highlight for my trip to tasmania. The park grounds were well kept and the whole feel of turning what was once a zoo style park into an 'unzoo' is brilliant. The animals all look really well cared for and healthy and the keepers presentstions were really great. The bird presentation is a must do along with the super cute eastern quolls and of course the tasmanian devils.
